Watson Coleman: Christie Preens While Working Class New Jersey Endures His Policies

(TRENTON) – Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) released the following statement on Monday:


“It’s reasonable to presume that while Gov. Christie today was preening in front of the cameras, somewhere in New Jersey a woman was wondering where she was going to receive quality health care. Thanks to Gov. Christie, that health care is more difficult to find and afford.

“It’s reasonable to presume that while Gov. Christie today was preening in front of the cameras, somewhere in New Jersey a working class family was wondering where they would get the legal help they need to fight an injustice. Thanks to Gov. Christie, such help likely isn’t there.

“It’s reasonable to presume that while Gov. Christie today was preening in front of the cameras, somewhere in New Jersey a middle-class family was worrying about how they were going to pay their property taxes and keep their home. Thanks to Gov. Christie, that question remains unanswered, especially for the 9.2 percent who are unemployed under his watch.

“New Jerseyans are suffering under this governor, and it’s time to put the theater aside and confront reality, and the reality is that Democrats have offered tax relief only to see it rejected by this governor over and over again.”
